I must say this chicken stew recipe is a huge hit with my whole family, and that includes my picky eater who hates vegetables.
There is nothing better than sitting down to a warm and hearty bowl of stew. My family enjoys stew a few times each month and while I mainly make beef stew my family really enjoys when I change it up and make a turkey or chicken stew.
Now if you are like me and are watching your calorie intake you might want to eat light on a day you make this or save it for your cheat day since it has quite a bit of calories in it.
I am pretty particular when it comes to making stew, I have had a few failed attempts where my potatoes vanished or carrots were under cooked so I am sharing my fail-proof recipe here today that works with any type of stew.
Chicken Stew Recipe
- 2 900ml Campbell's Chicken Broth (or your own homemade stock)
- 1 pkg Club House Chicken Stew
- 2½ cups Water
- Spanish Onion
- Chicken Breast
- In a large stock pot pour in your 2 containers of Campbell's Chicken Broth, your 4 cups of water, the Club Hour Chicken Stew package and whisk until combined and turn the stove onto med-high heat.
- Peel and slice your carrots, celery and dice your onion then place them into your pot. Once boiling turn heat down to med heat and simmer for one hour.
- Slice your chicken breasts into small bite size pieces and brown in a frying pan coated with oil.
- Do not fully cook through, just cook until the outside is no longer pink. Then place your chicken in your pot.
- Peel and cut your potatoes into bite size pieces then place in a separate pot filled with water on high and cook until they are "almost done". Strain the water and then put your potatoes into your large pot.
- Add in 2 cups of frozen or fresh peas and turn the heat down to low.
- In a small sauce pan add a chunk of butter and melt then add in 2-3 scoops of flour to make a roux. You don't want your roux to be too thick or too runny. Once it is mixed well and velvety pour into your stew pot and stir in quickly with a large spoon. Repeat this step until your gravy is thickened to your liking.
